reading in flight

I usually see people shopping for books at the airport, I guess reading is one of the best ways to pass time on a journey. Personally, I make it a point to buy a book every time I take a flight, that adds to my collection, relieves me of boredom during the flight and makes me sleep faster in the journey, I just doze off reading. Airports also offer this "Read and Return" books for sale which works out great for me. I buy one while going, finish it on the trip and return it on my way back and get half the money back !

Hey I wasn't aware of the Read and Return policy. That's good information to have in case I ever do forget to take a book with me. I really enjoy reading while on a plane because I don't take time to read as much as I would like to otherwise.

I didn't know about it either,got to know about it recently while surfing through a book store on an airport, on inquiring I found out that not only can you return it on stores at the airport but at designated stores in the city too, that's just so convenient.

hey thats a great idea. specially about the read and return policy which a lot of people are not aware. moreover, i have travelled a lot of times and i have hardly seen anybody not reading a book. its convient and easy to travel with. moreover, u can do crosswords also which i love to do...

not only while on a flight. i also take into consideration having a book while having my hair done at a salon, some treatments which basically requires 6 hours the least, or while waiting for a ride going home from school, or just some long road trips. book is a great companion to kill boredom.

i fly regularly and i always like to talk to the person sitting next to me about all the amazing things i have done in my life. I find people enjoy listening to me as i am also incredibly handsome. and that is always a bonus.
